TransTech Energy adds new Icom Bi-fuel Liquid Propane Injection Engine System

Posted by Greg Ezzell on Mon, May 24, 2010 @ 06:00 PM

TransTech Energy Alternative Fuel Systems continues to expand its propane alternative fuel solutions with the addition of the Icom JTG Propane Liquid Injection Engine System.  The JTG Propane Liquid Injection System is currently in service on more than 100,000 vehicles globally in the bi-fuel version. In the U.S., some 5,000 vehicles have been converted to propane use in the mono-fuel application of this technology offered as direct OEM applications.

TransTech Energy recently entered into a national agreement with Icom North America as a National Master Distributor/Installer and is marketing the new Icom system along with their other propane alternative fuel solutions, which include bi-fuel propane engine systems and propane diesel liquid injection systems

"We are very excited to add TransTech Energy as a National Distributor/Installer of our JTG Liquid Injection System," said Albert Venezio, Chairman of Icom North America.  "TransTech Energy has an excellent reputation and is well respected throughout the propane industry as a leading contractor for propane storage facility engineering and construction.  We are confident their success and commitment to excellence will carry over into their Alternative Fuels Division."  Venezio also added, "TransTech Energy presents a unique opportunity for fleet customers as they not only offer the engine conversions, they are experts in the propane storage and fueling equipment aspect of the business, providing a true turnkey solution to fleets."

 The Icom Bi-fuel Engine System can be installed on virtually any gasoline vehicle with multipoint injection, providing the vehicle with excellent drivability, performance and torque, with reduced emissions.   

David Kennedy, TransTech's Alternative Fuel Manger, is excited about the opportunity this bi-fuel solution brings to the company's product offering.  He notes, "one of the great things about this engine system is the gasoline mode of the vehicle is not disturbed and can still be used."  "Additionally the installation is completely non-invasive, as it utilizes the original ECU (engine computer) of the vehicle as the main controller, something fleet managers like to see with an aftermarket alternative fuel system." 

"This is a great bi-fuel system for fleet vehicles, including taxi and utility; law enforcement; state, county and municipal vehicles and other high mileage vehicles," offered Britt Medley, CEO of TransTech Energy.  "We have researched the bi-fuel marketplace for quite some time and are very happy to be working with Icom North America.  They are known globally as a leader in propane engine technologies and provide proven, reliable technology our customers can count on."

TransTech Energy's Alternative Fuel Systems Division offers total Alternative Fuel Solutions to vehicle fleets of any size.  From fleet engine system conversions -- including bi-fuel systems as well as propane diesel injection systems -- to autogas fuel dispensing and storage and bulk autogas fuel delivery options, they handle all aspects of fleet alternative fuel requirements, backed by years of experience and a track record of success.
